    has anyone tried to implement a sort of field autocomplete for the messages or searches?
    i have seen some examples using ajax/jquery, but before attempting to reinvent the wheel i was wondering if anyone had a go at doing this?

    There was this awesome plugin at bp-dev called autosuggest…but looks as though development has stopped and the dev. is awol. I tried it last week with BP 1.2.5.2 and WP3.0.1 and it failed. There are posts from the DEV here on BP and the plugin, but they are over a year old.

    I am using WP auto-suggest plug-in and it is working, but not as cool as above. Would love to see someone take the reigns on that plugin again…

    this is actually a great suggestion as it lead me to re-think about the use of jquery and json, which might take me in the right direction. i’ll see how far i can go with it!

    I’ve looked at the bp-dev autocomplete plugin before and I think that it wouldn’t take too much work to bring it up to date. Much of the buddypress functionality has changed since that plugin worked, but the javascript would for the most part be completely reusable.

    i kind of chew some code and can hack some small changes, but certainly don’t know enough php or buddypress to be able to change it myself…
    in fact i also looked at the autosuggest plugin and could not make it work even changing the id of the field in the option page…

    that one is actually not very good s i understand that allows searches only from the heading/titles of the posts and doesn’t use categories, tags etc… if i manage to understand why the field id is not working i’ve got the sql statement to pull out all the friends though! will give you an update later.
